January is Stalking Awareness Month

6.6 million adults are stalked each year in the United States, including many survivors of sexual violence. Take time this month to visit the National Stalking Awareness Month website to learn facts about stalking, safety tips, and relevant laws in your state.

Last year, CONNSACS and advocates throughout the state worked hard to pass legislation to update Connecticut’s stalking law. The new law went into effect on October 1, 2012. Are you familiar with it? Learn more from our new fact sheet.
